The fiftieth anniversary of their graduation has brought back to the reunion in Phillips Brooks House today nearly all of the thirty-six living members of the class of 1864.
There were ninty-nine men in 64 who completed their four years, and forty-four who were associated with the class for a part of that time. The large number of men who did not graduate is accounted for by the fact that many of them went to war. Forty-one members of the class, either graduate or associate, took part in the Rebellion--thirty-five in the Union Army and six in the Confederate Army. Of the ninety-nine graduates, almost every one took a further degree than the A.B., and more than a third studied medicine or law.
